sometimes a picture says it all….

Now let’s imagine if the graphic had gone on to 2012 and speculate if there is anything left or if it has actually gone negative now.  Why yes we know that it has since we are $16 Trillion in debt now…

So how much paper do you have?  How much do you have in real commodities?

Or are you in debt too?

Wake up America!

Tribute to Ron Paul from The Atlantic oft called the Brain of the TeaParty

It does not seem at all far-fetched to think that Paul could have a much greater impact on the race than last time. The Republican primaries are sure to be about economic and size-of-government issues. The subject that hurt him last time, foreign policy, will probably take a backseat. Paul will not lack for resources, thanks to his legion of online donors. Reagan, the Republican hero, once endorsed him.

Meanwhile, the country is losing faith in its economic leaders. “I feel really good about what’s happening,” he told me. “I never dreamed of a day when so many people would be thinking about the Federal Reserve. I can draw crowds of thousands! The first time I mentioned Austrian economics when I spoke at the University of Michigan, they started to applaud. I thought, What in thunder is happening? What’s happening is, the education is occurring.”
